A Fairy Story

Once upon a time there was a child who was three years old and lived in a small village with his parents.

His mother was in hospital because she was sick. His father loved him very much. The father took his sheep out to the field and took his son with him. There was a big hungry wolf in that field. While the sheep were eating the grass, the father was playing with his son.

In the evening he returned to the village with his sheep, but he forgot his son. In the village he remembered his son. He said, 'Where is my son? Where is my son?'

The father took his gun and ran quickly to the field. He found his son in front of the wolf's hole. The wolf wanted to eat the child, but his father fought it with a gun.

One month later the mother came back to the village. They all lived happily ever after.

For the love of a teacher

My teacher Alea is a good teacher. She comes from England and she's married and has four children, just one girl and three boys. She is 21 years old (or likes to think she is), she loves her husband. She always talks about him. She doesn't like American people. I don't know why, but she doesn't like them. She is more than beautiful. Everyone who sees Mrs Alea loves her from the first look. She is a mix between east and west. Nothing is better than a day spent with her.

My City

Tripoli has a population of about 2 million. It lies on the Mediterranean Sea, where the Romans landed nearly 1000 years ago. It was called 'Oya'. Tripoli was the biggest city in North Africa, but now there are many cities that are much bigger.

Tripoli is famous for many things. Tourists come from all over the world to visit its historic buildings, such as in the old city we can see Ahmed Basha Garamali House where the Turkish colonels lived. They also come to visit its museums and its many shops where you can buy anything.

Like many big cities, Tripoli has problems with traffic and pollution. Over 500,000 people a day use Tripoli's highways and roads, but there are still too many cars on the streets. The air isn't clean but it's cleaner than it was 100 years ago.

For me the best thing about Tripoli is the Sea. My family and I go to the beach in summer. I think it is the best beach in the world.

A Fairy Story

Once upon a time there was a beautiful girl that lived with her father's wife and her sisters which were born from her father's wife. They hated her because she was more beautiful than them.

This beautiful girl was named Cinderella. She was working hard every day and she felt tired at the end of the day. She sleeps late at night.

One day the Prince of the kingdom invited the beautiful girls of the kingdom to a very big party to choose one of them to marry.

Every girl in the kingdom went to the party except Cinderella because her father's wife prevented her from going to the party. While Cinderella was crying alone in the house, suddenly a bright woman came out and said to Cinderella 'Don't cry Cinderella.'. She gave her a new dress, a rapidly moving horse and very nice jewelry and she said to Cinderella 'Go to the party, but don't be later than 12 o'clock because everything that I gave to you will be changed to its origin after that time.

While Cinderella was at the party the prince took care of her and asked her 'Please can you dance with me?'. She said, 'Yes.'.

Unfortunately 12 o'clock came rapidly. Cinderella left the palace immediately and she lost one of her shoes.

The prince was sad and he told everybody in the palace 'I love this girl and I want to marry her. So go find her.'. They went to find her in the houses and they carried the shoe which she had lost.

Every girl in the kingdom tried to wear the shoe but it fit no one. When they reached Cinderella's house, her sisters try to wear it, but no way.

Fortunately, Cinderella appeared and wore the shoe. They said together, 'This is the girl that we want.'.

One day later Cinderella and the prince were married and they lived happily ever after.

Where do you like to go with your friends? What do like to do?

Next weekend I want to go with my friends on a picnic on our farm in Krimea. We hardly ever meet each other because all of them have children and jobs, so they are busy. I miss them so much.

There we can talk about our life and what we do with our time. We can enjoy the landscape, the plants, fruit trees and the animals like sheep, rabbits, cows, horse, hens and the guard dogs. It's wonderful to see. Then we will play volleyball and jog around the farm, and we will have a running race. I don't know who be the champion.

At lunch we will make a barbecue but our dinner will be some sandwiches. Then we will go back home.


I like to go with my friends to the city center in Tripoli. I like to go at night. We like shopping and buying some things like clothes and cassettes.

Sometimes we like to go to the sea. We go swimming and fishing and in spring we like to go to Gharian. We like to take some pictures in the mountains and play football. Some friends like to cook food, some like to dance and listen to music, and some like to play cards. We have very enjoyable time and it is good memories for us.

Ahmed Elfandi

I sometimes go with my friends to the cafe and we sit and have some coffee and we play a game of cards or chess and sometimes we just go and sit in the car and we just talk and laugh.

We usually go to the family park and we do the same thing over again, but this time there are girls!

Usually when I have a day off for a vacation or free time I go out with my best friend to have a great time.

Sometimes we go to the city center to see some new shops or to snack bars to drink something hot like cappuccino or something cold like fruit juices.

Often when we meet each other and go together we chat for a long time about our routines and events that happened before or activities we are going to do. Oh . . yes we are gossiping about somebody at not always!

My old school friends and I go for a picnic or to swim, especially in summer. Most Fridays my best friend and I go to the Friday market in the early morning to find something old or antique, or to sell something useless.

Mohammed Abdalla

I would like to travel around the world with my friends. I would visit the famous places in the world such as the Great Wall in China, the Pyramids in Egypt and the Taj Mahal in India and other places.


I have good friends, we are very happy group. Sometimes on holidays we go on day trips also we go to learn about English. We're taking conversation class to improve our English and I write my homework with my friends.

Sometimes we are going to the city park to play tennis. At the weekends we go to the Internet cafe to chat or play games after that we go to the restaurant to eat lunch. I go shopping for clothes, maybe alone or with my friends about twice a month. Usually I go to hairdressers with my friends, then we go to the cinema.


I really want to go on a nice picnic without boys and no parents in our farm and spend the night there with my friends. There's going to be music and we can cook nice food for us and if the weather is going to be hot we can swim in the swimming pool. I really wish to do it this summer.


I think for a holiday I would like to go shopping with my friends to buy some clothes, books and some tapes of my favorite singers. After that go to my favorite restaurant for dinner with my friends to eat delicious dishes which taste great, listening to music and talking about us, our life, remembering memories together and laughing about the funny things. When we finish our food we may have some coffee with cake especially my favorite kind of cake, cheesecake, and some fruit. Then we go home and prepare for a new day of work.
